webinar „Pregnancy and epilepsy”



 Dear colleagues,

It is my great pleasure and privilege to welcome you to the live webinar, Epilepsy and Pregnancy, sponsored by Sanofi and which will be on September 29th, 2020 from 9:30 to 11:30 CEST.

Women with epilepsy have a number of unique concerns during pregnancy. Pregnancy can exacerbate seizure frequency and both maternal epilepsy and in utero exposure to antiepileptic drugs can increase the risk of adverse outcomes in children born to women with epilepsy.

The careful management of epilepsy in pregnant women is therefore crucial to maintain a balance between controlling seizures and reducing those risks. Managing pregnant women and women of childbearing potential suffering from epilepsy is therefore challenging and complex and may require reconsidering the treatment options in a case by case approach.

A rational approach requires knowledge of such risks as well as an understanding of the effects of pregnancy on seizure control and of potential side effects of antiepileptic drugs.

During this interactive discussion session, the esteemed faculty will share practice-based consensus guidelines they developed with experts from six European countries (France, Italy, Poland, Spain, Turkey, and the UK). Experts will discuss the criteria that should be taken into account when managing women of child-bearing potential suffering from epilepsy and focus on the potential risks to the mother and child as well as the importance of engaging the conversation and planning a pregnancy well in advance to mitigate those risks.

Furthermore, treatment options before, during and post-pregnancy will be explored with a special focus on the switch and/or discontinuation measures to describe the most appropriate use of anti-epileptic drugs in these patients. Lastly, we will explore ways to encourage and support patient engagement in pregnancy planning. Planned pregnancies are usually best for women with epilepsy. This gives time to work with neurologists and obstetricians head of time.

Using strategies to lessen risks will promote a good outcome for mother and baby.

I am privileged to be joined in this webinar by an esteemed faculty panel of Professor Carreno and Professor Gürses. We will be happy to answer your questions via the online platform following the presentation.

Please note that further information on how to register will follow over the coming weeks. In the meantime, please be sure to save the date if you wish to participate in what promises to be an engaging exchange of expertise.

I look forward to you joining us in September!

Sincerely, Professor Joanna Jedrzejczak

Zmiana terminu konferencji PTE

Szanowni Państwo,

Jak Państwo wiecie, w związku z zaistniałą pandemią, zarząd PTE podjął decyzję o przeniesieniu dorocznej majowej Konferencji PTE na dni 17-19 grudnia br.

Wydaje się jednak, że sytuacja jest wciąż na tyle niepewna, że ze względów bezpieczeństwa i w trosce o zdrowie uczestników i wykładowców, nie możemy planować przeprowadzenia jej również w grudniu.

W związku z tym zawiadamiamy, że XXX Konferencja PTE odbędzie się w dniach 20-22 maja 2021 roku, w tym samym miejscu (hotel Novotel w Warszawie) oraz w tej samej formule.

W trosce o ciągłość spotkań organizowanych przez Zarząd PTE i o to, aby nie zawieść wszystkich zainteresowanych corocznymi spotkaniami, postanowiliśmy jednak utrzymać termin grudniowy i przeprowadzić spotkanie naukowe w innej niż dotychczas formie. Planujemy organizację jednodniowego sympozjum wirtualnego, które odbędzie się w formie wykładów dostępnych na platformie internetowej przedstawiających aktualną wiedzę z zakresu padaczki, tak teoretyczną, jak praktyczną.

O wszelkich szczegółach spotkania oraz tematach wykładów będziemy informować zainteresowanych na stronie internetowej Polskiego Towarzystwa Epileptologii.


W imieniu Zarządu Głównego PTE

Joanna Jędrzejczak

The ILAE British Branch Epilepsy Neuroimaging Course was successfully launched in March 2017 and is now in its fourth year. Medical imaging is integral to the diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of modern epilepsy care and has greatly increased our understanding of this complex neurological condition. A fundamental understanding of the latest imaging modalities and analytical techniques is essential to ensure clinicians are best placed to choose the correct types of scans, counteract for patient-specific anomalies and better interpret the analytical outcomes.

Open to all healthcare professionals and affiliates and MSc/PhD students, the 2.5-day course aims to provide both an overview and a solid foundation in state-of-the-art MRI and PET scanning in epilepsy. 

The course will:

Consist of lectures and small-group tutorials given by experienced MRI- and PET-clinicians / researchers

Cover aspects of structural and functional MRI acquisition and analysis

Train participants on real patients’ data in hands-on laboratory exercises.

On completion of the course, the participants will be able to:

Employ MRI and PET to influence the clinical management of patients with epilepsy

„Burza mózgów. Na pomoc chorym z padaczką”

„Burza mózgów. Na pomoc chorym z padaczką”

W obliczu wyzwań stojących przed chorymi na padaczkę, ich bliskimi i całym systemem ochrony zdrowia – konieczne jest rozpowszechnianie wiedzy o chorobie i jej konsekwencjach. Padaczka dotyka bowiem pacjenta, ale także jego rodzinę, opiekunów i przyjaciół, co sprawia, że tylko w naszym kraju jej skutki odczuwa bezpośrednio ok. milion osób. Jej leczenie może trwać latami, a stygmatyzacja społeczna, której często doświadczają chorzy – może skutecznie zniechęcać do uczestniczenia w życiu społecznym i zawodowym, sprawiając, że chorzy z padaczką stają się „niewidzialni”.  Skutki choroby są dotkliwe – dla pacjentów, ich bliskich, ale także dla całego systemu ochrony zdrowia. Padaczka generuje bowiem ogromne koszty rzędu 1,2 mld zł rocznie, z czego ponad 780 mln zł to koszty pośrednie.

Dlatego Polskie Towarzystwo Epileptologii zainicjowało kampanię informacyjną pt. „Burza mózgów. Na pomoc chorym z padaczką”. Nazwa kampanii jest swoistym zaproszeniem wszystkich uczestników systemu – ochrony zdrowia, edukacji oraz rynku pracy – do rozmowy oraz podjęcia działań, które mogą pomóc poprawić przede wszystkim jakość życia i zdrowia chorych, ale także funkcjonowanie pacjentów z padaczką w społeczeństwie. Celem inicjatywy jest szerzenie świadomości na temat epilepsji oraz podjęcie dyskusji na temat niezaspokojonych potrzeb pacjentów zmagających się z tą chorobą.

Dear ILAE member

Dear ILAE member,

in preparation for ILAE guidance on diagnostic procedures for Psychogenic Nonepileptic Seizures (PNES) the ILAE Commission on Psychiatry would like to sample the views of ILAE members on the use of suggestive seizure induction in the diagnosis of PNES. The term “suggestive seizure induction” (or “provocation techniques”) covers diagnostic techniques using any form of suggestion, usually during electroencephalography (EEG) or video-EEG, to trigger a seizure when the diagnosis of PNES is considered. For example, this could include simple verbal suggestion, intravenous injection of placebo, suggestion based on hyperventilation or intermittent photic stimulation or a combination of techniques.

This questionnaire is being sent to clinicians around the world to assess current international practice in relation to the use of suggestive seizure induction. This survey is intended to inform the development of ILAE guidance on the video-EEG recording of patients in whom a diagnosis of PNES is considered possible or likely.

The survey can be completed even if no defined protocol is applied in your unit, or if suggestive seizure induction is not used in your unit.  Completion 31/07/2019 and should take no more than 10 minutes.

You can complete the survey by clicking on the following link or by pasting this link in your internet browser:

We would be very grateful if you could help the Commission on Psychiatry by answering this on-line survey. We welcome responses from multiple practitioners within the same unit.

Many thanks,

Markus Reuber for the ILAE PNES Task Force
